The B-52s were set to perform at the White House last night during a state dinner for Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, but the gig was cancelled due to the Israel-Hamas war. “While we had initially planned for the legendary B-52s to perform their iconic dance and party music, we are now in a time when so many are facing sorrow and pain,” First Lady Jill Biden told reporters yesterday. “So we made a few adjustments to the entertainment portion of the evening.” The B-52s will still attend the state dinner as guests. “The president’s own Marine Band and the Army and Air Force Strolling Strings will provide instrumental music for the dinner,” Jill Biden added.
